Join us for a generative writing workshop where we will read poems, engage in conversation, and be led through immersive prompts. We welcome both new and lifelong poets – truly, no experience necessary, just bring a pen and notebook! You will come away with a few drafts, new ideas, and a renewed appreciation for poetry and the possibilities therein.
